Bears’ Seth Frankoff to return to lineup soonDoosan Bears’ pitcher Seth Frankoff is expected to make his return to the team toward the end of this month.
“Frankoff pitched today [June 16] and said his condition is OK,” said Bears manager Kim Tae-hyung before the Jamsil derby on Sunday.
Frankoff played in a practice game on Sunday and tossed 28 pitches. His fastest speed was 144 kilometers per hour (89 miles per hour) and his average pitch speed was at 141 kilometers per hour. Frankoff, who was excluded from the Bears’ roster due to an arm injury on May 20, will be pitching in a Futures League game before making his return to the main squad.
